    Default cam belt e.c.t.

    I need to look into getting the CAM belt replaced and been advised to get the water pump and tensioners whilst im at it. Im driving a facelift vectra 1.9 CDTI (07 plate). Can someone verify the part numbers below are correct, im going to the dealers anyway but its easier to give them part numbers


    waterpump - 93178713
    timing belt kit - 93191277 (im guessing this included the tensioners too? can someone confirm)


    Also could anyone advise on how long it should take a garage to do the work and how much i should be looking at paying so i don't get ripped off .

    I was also going to get the fan/aux belt replaced but was told unless its squeeling or looks worn then theres not much point?

    Any help appreciated, thanks

    yea yeah, my backside it already twitching like a rabbits nose :P

    Do VX sell the belt, tensioners and water pump as a complete kit ? or does the pump need to be bought seperate. cant seem to find a part number for the whole lot in one kit

    pump is separate, but you're better getting the genuine parts for the job imo...

    my motor now at 135k has had the lot done twice (piece of mind)
